CCTV footage of a tragic accident in Lucban is going viral wherein a woman was thrown in the air upon impact with rampaging Hyundai sedan.
Based on the CCTV footage, right from the get-go of the 62-second video, a figure in the shape of a woman can be seen flying in the air, just above the speeding like she was projectile before crashing down into the roof of the makeshift stall of a sidewalk vendor.
The wayward car missed the vendor who was standing in the sidewalk by a hairline.
Shortly, many people went out of their houses to check what was the commotion all about.
Then, the cops appeared in the screen running after the rampaging Hyundai car.
